i have a leek in my exhaust right up in the front. Every thing is all rusted and a friend of mine who is helping me work on my car suggested i go with a new full exhaust. I want a good sounding one that's low and deep any one have any suggestions? If you have one on your car post some pics for me or a video. Thanks for all the help

If you need a header there are OBX 4-2-1 style headers for about $100 on ebay. Techtonics Tuning has an aluminized cat back with a borla for about $350, I've heard you can get a stainless cat back from Magnaflow on hottexuahst.com for $375 shipped.

do 2.25" pipe from the cat to the rear muffler
get a stock VR6 muffler and put it in
done.
and cheap.
and just as good as any exhaust that costs hundreds of dollars.

This two of us saying basically the same thing. Maganaflow backbox or VR6 box either way.
Dont forget about your local exhaust shop they can make something up for you usually alot cheaper and with the same parts as a very expensive pre assembled system.

yes before the cat it is before the downpipe it is at the spot that looks like the flix pipe i tryed to tighten the 6 bolts around the header but it still sounds the same as before.

I have a Magnaflow high flow cat 2.25 piping all the way back with a carsound oval pipe and some basic muffler to quiet it up a little.

+1, but overkill if you don't want/need a quiet-ish exhaust.
